Canstruction® Junior Competition
Kindergarten through 12th grade students compete in an innovative competition which incorporates basic and advanced art, design, science, technology, engineering and math principles (STEM) while instilling the importance of community service. Competitions are hosted by a school or school district after registering with Canstruction. Each school is responsible for soliciting competing teams and fundraising to host the event on school property. Schools submit competition results and digital photographs of the winners to Canstruction.
Competing teams are responsible for purchasing canned food and designing/building their structure. Teams are encouraged to include a mentor with a physics, architecture, design, engineering or construction background. Teams are judged in three categories and receive awards at the end of the competition. All food is donated to a local hunger relief organization after the competition.
